The City of Corsicana announced Monday that vandals have done approximately $50,000 in damage to a major city road project.
Mayor Don Denbow`s email sent Monday regarding the damage:
The North 24th Street Reconstruction project had a significant setback.
Last Thursday night at approximately 8:00 p.m. the west half of North 24th between Sycamore Avenue and Woodlawn Avenue was damaged by vandals.
Over 500 square yards of concrete paving was ruined. The cost of this damage is estimated to be over $50,000 and will add additional time to the completion date of the project.
Unfortunately, the citizens that use this street will continue to be inconvenienced by additional construction delays. The contractor is trying to finish this project as soon as possible. A police report has been filed by XIT Paving and Construction. This is a criminal offense and an investigation is underway.
Please contact the Corsicana Police Department with any information that may lead to the arrest and conviction of the individual responsible for this damage.
The phone number for the Corsicana Police Department is 903-654-4902.
